Skialpinism has becoming increasingly popular. Hence we became interested in a relatively new book which contains a selection of the best skialpine rides in the mountains of Slovakia.
Mengusovska valley, High Tatras, is a place which every fan of alpine tourism must have visited. Its beauty and grandeur is at its best during summer season yet the present article introduces you to tourism in the area in winter.
There are not many options for tourism during winter months in the High Tatras as during the main season. Should you long for a climb up some of the summits open during the winter closure in the High Tatras, you may choos, for instance – Predni Solisko. In the article to follow we tell you about the up this Tatranian giant.
Winter is getting over slowly yet there is quite a lot of snow there. This is the reason why we take you to the district of Mengusovce town sort of the gateway to the High Tatras. The village is situated in the district of Poprad close to the crossroad of the road E50 and D1 freeway.
Perhaps none of the High Tatra summits enjoy such popularity as Rysy does. For fans of alpine tourism, they are an attractive and grateful destination for tours. To get to this favorite Tatra Hill we will introduce the following article.

The ridges and hills of the High Tatras captivate every tourist who likes to take beautiful and demanding daylong trek through the beautiful alpine scenery. One of the touristically attractive and popular sites of this mountain range is Svinica - a distinctive tower mountain protruding on the main ridge of the High Tatras.
Today we set out to the beautiful Tatra village of Podbanska, partially a borough of Vysoke Tatry town, the other part belongs to Pribylina village.
The Western Tatras is very popular and frequented mountain range. Treks here, the main ridge especially, are amazing and people who go there long remember it. Ostry Rohac is perhaps the most attractive and most well known peak in this area. Many tourists hike across it every year.
The High Tatras are among the most popular places for tourists in Slovakia. In summer, many visitors from home and abroad come here to enjoy the magic of mountains or do some hiking. Sedlo pod Ostrvou is a popular spot for easy alpine tourism.
Right on the banks of the Strbske Pleso you will find a unique place to relax - family hotel Solisko. Its location allows you to take day-to-day hiking, cycling and cross-country skiing.
This year the apartment with a sea view is probably not waiting for you, but on the mountains. But that doesn't matter at all! Along with the summer came the right time to choose the ideal place for a holiday. There is a period during which you recharge your batteries, have fun and have many extraordinary experiences. But in order for the planned holiday to really meet your expectations and purpose, you must find time to choose it, think everything through and plan ahead.
Do you like retro? If so, we will take you today to Trnava and the High Tatras before 1989. At the same time, we will wander through Bratislava, both through the eyes of children and through the eyes of Matej Bel.
Skialpinism is becoming more popular and popular in our latitudes, so we would like to draw your attention to a brand new and unique book guide. You will learn about alpine climbing in the Slovak ski resorts.
The winter in the Tatras is in full swing and we would like to present you a very interesting publication that captures the complete crossing of the ridge of the High Tatras in winter conditions. And without leaving out heavy climbing peaks or entire ridge sections (in 1974).
If you are planning a trip with your kids, the Tatras are an ideal destination, as well as a new book from the family owned publishing house Dajama. There are 25 field trips, which belong to the most interesting places in the Tatras, especially from the perspective of children.
This time we visit our beloved Tatras, more precisely the village of Strbske Pleso, which is part of the village Strba. From the Tatra Electric Railway - Strbske Pleso stop we go through the tracks to the recently renewed national cultural monument - the Monte Móry lookout tower.
Vysoke Tatra sis one of the most beautiful nature gems in Slovakia. These high mountains lure tourists for their grandiosity, monumentality and immesurable beauty of their deep valleys and sharp pyramidal peaks reaching up to the skies. Jehneci pyramidal peak (2 230 m) one of the accessible summits in the High Tatras. The climb is amazing and valuable experience.
Two weeks later we go again to the Tatras. This time we visit a small village of Tatranska Lesna. It is located almost in the middle on the road from Stary Smokovec and Tatranska Lomnica. On one side it borders with the Path of Freedom and from the other side with the mouth of Studena Valley.
In the upper part of Velká Studená valley behind the Zbojnický ridge there is Zbojnická Cottage, a building with a hard fate. Going to a visit there means tourism, mountaineering, ski touring or crossing of near ridges.
There are many cottages hiding in the High Tatras. Together we will explore its youngest cottage that for decades guards Štrbské pleso and surrounding mountains.
Today we move from the High Tatras to Western Tatras where we visit Žiarska valley where popular Žiarska Cottage is located (1324 meters above the sea level). This position is a great starting point for any trek to the regions of Braníkov and Barance.

The Tatranian National Park offers many beauties. High and steep mountains, deep valleys, majestic falls, unseen beautiful fauna and flora and also beautiful things hidden in depths of the area such as various caves. Only one of them, though, is open to the public.
Today our steps head to a Tatranian village located beneath the second highest peak in Slovakia. Lomnicky Stit. Tatranska Lomnica is one of the most beautiful areas of Vysoke Tatry city district. It hides not only rich architectural history, or the largest ski resort in the Tatras but also the new Ski museum.
As many other places in the High Tatras (2314 meters) even Bystre Sedlo is not that well known among tourists. Perhaps, it is given to the fact that there is no cottage that would offer tourists some refreshments after being whole day on food. Or, perhaps, the route is not leading to any of the High Tatras’ peaks. There are only a few people but you will definitely enjoy your time in untouched Tatran nature.
Although winter is in full swing and snow inspires people to put on ski boots rather than hiking boots. However, it is time to schedule trips for the summer season. Those planning to go to the High Tatras, for example, may rise to one of the easternmost mountains shields, Velka Svistovka (2037 meters). Because the adjacent Kezmarska Biela Voda Valley could be walked through also in winter, many winter hikers will appreciate the following tip.

In the previous article we began walking our tour of knowledge about cottages in the Tatras. We found out how they developed from simple sheds to regular cottages that are mostly parts of some settlements today. Now we will move a step ahead. We will examine the past not that distant.
In the eastern part of the High Tatras in the end of Zelené pleso valley there is the Cottage by Zelené pleso. This popular place is often called “Brnčalka”. The cottage lies by an emerald green lake surrounded by massive peaks of the High Tatras. The history of the cottage began towards the end of the 19th century.

Last week started an autumn in the town of Svit, and we will continue in it even today. We told you some basic facts about the foundation of one of Slovakia’s youngest towns. We walked among its typical brick houses and found there a mark pointing to a nature trail.
One beautiful day we came into conclusion to climb one of the Tatranian shields. Therefore, we travelled to Strbske Pleso lake and from there we set off for the Salisko summit.
It is not necessary to provide you with some extensive introduction of the High Tatras. These mountains are simply splendid. They lay in the heart of Europe, being a well-known and popular destination among domestic and foreign tourists. Mostly those who love alpine treks travel here frequently. Koprovsky peak (2367 m) is one of the most famous and most visited points of interest there.
Like the High Tatra West Tatra is also popular area. You can have some remarkable outdoor experience there. Both mountains seems to be one whole. However, unlike the High Tatra, West Tatra are lower.
